Rich Rodriguez taking me places I’ve never been, once more, with feeling… (And doesn’t WVU come off as so angelic in trying to expedite the trial?)
Wakefield said this morning the university’s Board of Governors is concerned that if the lawsuit doesn’t move quickly through court, Rodriguez’s new job at the University of Michigan and his busy schedule will lead to the litigation dragging on.
“We recognize that with Mr. Rodriguez being the head coach at Michigan, and with things like fall practice starting in August and the football season, his attorneys might try to argue things can’t proceed in the fall because of his schedule,” Wakefield said. “WVU wants the case resolved quickly, and by expediting it, we can do that and accommodate Mr. Rodriguez’s schedule.”
Off to the airport. Should be home sometime around Sunday. WVU’s RPI is at No. 34 now and the consensus is split UConn and Pitt, beat St. Johns, win at least one game in the Big East Tournament and the Mountaineers get an invitation to the NCAA Tournament. Has to be some combination of four wins that must include St. John’s and UConn and/or Pitt and one or two wins in the Garden. Can’t lose to St. John’s –Â period. Can’t lose to UConn and Pitt and hope to get in without anything less than making the finals of the Big East Tournament.
